Only one-third of Americans ages 65+ follow experts who recommend that older adults engage in moderate exercise at least 30 minutes five days a week along with muscle-strengthening activities for two or more days a week working all major muscle groups.
Experts agree regular physical activity helps improve mental and physical well-being. Meraki Fitness offers fun, engaging sessions, set to senior’s favorite music while singing along in a healthy, caring environment.
Aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercises sustain bone density and muscle mass. Lack of exercise can bring difficulty in stability, mobility and balance. Depression from a sedentary lifestyle can also become debilitating.
In addition to a stimulating experience, classes and individual sessions are social opportunities for those in facilities or receiving at-home care. By participating in senior fitness events throughout the year, seniors are able to have healthier checkups with less pain, more energy and look forward to their next visit from Meraki Fitness.
